The era of driverless cars

According to futurist Thomas Frey, by 2030, robots will replace human drivers. This will solve the problem of road safety and traffic management. But at the same time, it will leave huge numbers of people out of work: thousands of taxi drivers, truck drivers, couriers, together with traffic police and medical workers, because the level of comfort and safety on the roads will reduce the number of road accidents. The most important thing is to ensure the cyber security of one’s car, or the attackers will be able to make your vehicle ride into the middle of nowhere, or worse.

The spread of unmanned vehicles made the problem of parking in the central areas of cities irrelevant. After dropping off passengers, the car searches for a parking place autonomously, somewhere away from the centre - for example, you can program its computer to choose the cheapest parking. At the designated time, the car returns and picks up the owner.

Eren We may have much bigger problems. What about our feelings? In case of an accident, the computer will only evaluate the possibilities. 21 Sep 2019

Owen Shaughnessy It'll happen, but the moment one car goes haywire and kills its passenger and pedestrians, I think there will be some design edits. No drive by wire in human control mode. I need a direct link between me and the road that doesn't pass through a box of silicon. Mechanical. I do however, welcome the idea. I think it would make commuting quite easy and relaxing. Instead of flying middle fingers, people could roll the windows down and chat whilst in traffic. I doubt by this point in time self driving cars will take over, so traffic jams will still exist. I expect great things from this technology. 22 Mar 2019

Антон Дождиков Попробуйте проехать по России от Смоленска до Владивостока. Тут любой робот-автопилот сойдет с ума и объявит забастовку. Не исключено, что водители обычных авто из чувства солидарности будут провоцировать и подрезать беспилотные автомобили. Из хулиганских побуждений или протестуя против вытеснения человека из данной сферы экономики. 06 Feb 2019
